    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Overall

    I have never been a fan of celebrity autobiographies; I'm generally just not that interested. So, even though I have always liked Rob Lowe's acting (especially on the West Wing), I wasn't particularly interested in this book. It was the incredible reader reviews that changed my mind, and I am so glad that I did. This book is as thoroughly charming as the author appears to be. What an incredible life he's had, and what a great storyteller he is. I'm about to go and tell all of my friends to read this book, but most of all, I'm going to recommend it to my mother, who stopped watching The West Wing when "Sam Seaborn" left. If you're interested in a life well-lived, with few regrets and lessons learned, you'll love this book.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    "Not worth the time"
    Overall

    Where do I start? The story had an interesting premise, but the execution of it was disappointing. The worst part, for me, was the reader. Since the main character was male, a male reader would have made sense, but they chose to use a woman. Her reading was simply terrible -- her inflection was completely off. Sometimes her words ran together, and sometimes she would emphasize the wrong words. There was also rather saccharine music that played between chapters that I found annoying.

    This was an odd story with a spiritual message that just didn't resonate with me, and the ending really left me hanging. Apparently, there is a follow-up book where some questions may be answered, but I certainly don't intend to waste another 4-5 hours of my life on it. Definitely cannot recommend this read.
